EC 3.6.3.33

Accepted name: vitamin B12-transporting ATPase

Reaction: ATP + H2O + vitamin B12out = ADP + phosphate + vitamin B12in

Systematic name: ATP phosphohydrolase (vitamin B12-importing)

Comments: ABC-type (ATP-binding cassette-type) ATPase, characterised by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains. Does not undergo phosphorylation during the transport process. A bacterial enzyme that imports cobalamin derivatives.
